This is a blog that depicts the chronicle of my life - especially my experiences in the kitchen. Born and raised in Malaysia, love and marriage brought me to Michigan, a place I now comfortably calls home. The same elements got me started in a territory totally unfamiliar to me - the kitchen. With little history in the cook’s room, it began with a basic notebook and a pen in hand. Then came the endless experimentation in the kitchen with all the tools (some familiar, other not) and an inexhaustible list of ingredients.
Empty new pages gradually got filled up while the old ones tested against time. Scribbled and overwritten time and again, each page is now wearing out by the day - slowly, but steadily. It is a personal treasure that takes me no time to realize. It has, after all, marked the foundation to my cooking experiences and how they get developed over time.

The simple thought of preserving this was the reason that led me to this unimaginable idea to starting this blog. To get it started was hard; little did I know that to keep it going was even harder a task. Maintaining this blog will definitely be the driving force that can keep me going in the kitchen.
Probably a gift addressed to the future me and my family, this is (for now) a reference site that I know will continue to heighten my cooking experiences as they slowly unfold. At the same time, I hope that it sends a message to other kitchen newbies just like me - that with enough time and patience, there will be a time when we can get comfortable with setting foot within the culinary world.
This is a journey with plenty to learn, plenty to experiment and plenty to share.
My heartfelt gratitude to you for dropping by and being a part of this. Please feel free to leave me with any comment or your personal insight. They are always appreciated.
